Mortal remains of soldier Sepoy Mandeep Singh, who lost his life in an encounter in Machil sector of Kupwara,J&K near LoC, was brought to his hometown in Kurukshetra, Haryana on Sunday morning.

27-year-old Sepoy Mandeep Singh of the 17th Sikh Regiment was killed on Friday and his body was mutilated by terrorists in a barbaric attack near the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir. The army had said "the incident will be responded to appropriately", adding the attackers had fled into Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir "under the cover of heavy firing by Pakistan army". One terrorist was killed in the strike.

A sense of sadness descended on the native village of the army jawan Mandeep as news of his death reached them on Saturday. The family members of the 30-year-old martyr were inconsolable.

Several women from Aantehri village here reached the martyr's house today and tried to console Mandeep s widow. The couple had got married two years ago, family members said. Mandeep's widow Prerna is a Head Constable with Haryana police and posted at Shahbad Markanda here.

The martyr's neighbours described him as a "go getter" who always had a smile on his face. Subhash Chandra, Sarpanch of Antahedi village, told ANI on Saturday, " No one will celebrate Diwali this year, our entire village mourns the death of Mandeep Singh. Only one candle will be lit in every house for the peace of the soul of our martyrs, we are really proud of them."
